Like most teens, 17-year-old Daniel was looking forward to going to his school’s homecoming dance. He dreamed about taking a beautiful date out and dancing the night away.
But there is one thing that makes Daniel different than many of his other peers – he has Down syndrome. Sadly, even though he asked several different girls to accompany him to the homecoming dance, all of them turned him down.
When 10th-grader Kylie heard this, her heart broke for Daniel. She wanted him to have the special night he had been looking forward to, so she decided she would ask him if he would go to the homecoming dance with her.
“I don’t think of kids that have a disability… I don’t think of them as being different,” Kylie said. “I hope I can make his night fun.”
Daniel was so excited to go to the dance with Kylie, and his mother, Tonya, was incredibly touched by the sweet girl’s act of kindness.
